I previously worked as a Registered Behavior Technician in a pediatric Autism clinic.
Counseling looks different for everyone-it is not one size fits all. I use methods that work for you in that moment and can vary by session. What you may need one day may not be what you will need the next. I aim to give you a safe, non-judgmental space to tell your story how and when you are ready. Together, we will have honest, sometimes uncomfortable but needed conversations. We will address barriers, examine boundaries, set goals, and work towards finding your voice.

I'm now a mom to two neurodivergent teens ( autism and ADHD), a college sophomore, four cats and a dog named Spot.
Therapy is where you get to be yourself. Explore your feelings, thoughts and actions. Feel like a cloud of sadness is following your around? Let's talk about it. I help people find themselves, their identity and their peace. Learn to value yourself and work on those areas that you've been avoiding. I help people who have been raised in unhealthy families learn to communicate, be vulnerable, find healthy relationships and respect themselves. Mommy or daddy issues? We can work on that. Maybe you're a young adult feeling a bit overwhelmed by life, trying to figure out who you are and how life works. I can be your sounding board.
